The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Longer Journeys, Repeat Visitors

A journey by road allows you see so much more than flying from place to place. You will pass through remote villages and towns, seeing the way of life far away from the main tourist routes. We use the best drivers and vehicles to ensure the destination comes alive, and you will stay in charming boutique hotels throughout. You will have the chance to see the interesting villages of Nuwakot and Bandipur which many people leave off an itinerary to Nepal. The accommodation is more simple that you would usually expect, but the experience is second-to-none if you like to immerse yourself in the destination a little more fully.

Customise Your Itinerary

Any part of this itinerary can be customised, whether you want to add nights here and there, tailor the day-to-day experiences, or even just start from scratch creating a totally bespoke itinerary.

Idea 1

If you want to make the trip even longer, then why not add in a trek in the Everest Region.

Idea 2

Extend your trek in the Annapurna Region. This suggested itinerary only has three days, but we can make this five very easily using comfortable lodges, or longer if you want to get further into the mountains using traditional tea houses.

Idea 3

One way to cover the journey from Pokhara to Chitwan is to embark on a two day raft down the Seti River. It is a more of a float, with a few rapids, and allows you to get even further off-the-beaten track.
